Bill Clinton: Don't 'Overly Parse' McCain Request to Delay Debate (http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/09/bill-clinton-do.html)
September 25, 2008 8:26 AM

ABC News' Nitya Venkataraman Reports: Former President Bill Clinton defended Sen. John McCain's request to delay the first presidential debate, saying McCain did it in "good faith" and pushed organizers to reserve time for economy talk during the debate if the Friday plans move forward.

Appearing on Good Morning America Thursday, Clinton told ABC News' Chris Cuomo that McCain's push to postpone the debate would only be a good political move if both candidates agreed. McCain announced on Wednesday that he would "suspend" his presidential campaign to come to Washington to help negotiate a financial bailout bill.

"We know he didn't do it because he's afraid because Sen. McCain wanted more debates," Clinton said, adding that he was "encouraged" by the joint statement from McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.

"You can put it off a few days the problem is it's hard to reschedule those things," Clinton said, "I presume he did that in good faith since I know he wanted -- I remember he asked for more debates to go all around the country and so I don't think we ought to overly parse that."

The DUmmies aren't going to like this. BC defending McCain that is

:D

He's been on their "list" all week. The View and Larry King live must have been wild. They are having a fit about the big dog not supporting obama like they want him to.

I'm writing to Hillary, telling her I'll NEVER vote for her if she doesn't straighten Bill out.

He needs to get on the Obama bandwagon NOW ... no more "McCain's a great guy, Sarah's a great gal." NO ... are you a Democrat or Mr. I Wanna Live In The White House In 2013.

It's mostly HIS fault Hillary's not the nominee ... his bullshit during the primary campaign (AND all his skeezy financial antics since he left the presidency -- selling is imprimatur to the highest Foundation bidder, hanging around with skeezy businessmen, not reporting where his donations come from, etc. etc. -- I could never have voted for Hillary, knowing what the Repugs would do with all that information. We'd have lost by a landslide. Worse than Ferraro-Zaccaro 1984.)

NOW, he's gonna ensure she'll NEVER be president ... because I will NEVER forgive Bill if he doesn't knock it off right now, and I will NEVER vote for Hillary for dogcatcher unless she sets Bill straight (or kicks him to the curb).

I have HAD it with this nonsense. We need him ON BOARD WITH OBAMA or SILENT ON THE ELECTION. You choose, Bill. If you can't support our Democratic candidate COMPLETELY, then go do your Foundation thing and STFU!

I went ahead and started a thread (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/showthread.php?t=5395) in the Best/Worst. I predict there will be many more raving DUmmy posts about this.
